Media Channel Identification with Multi-Match Detection and Disambiguation Based on Single-Match
Publication/Patent Number: US2017251248A1 Publication Date: 2017-08-31 Application Number: 15/222,405 Filing Date: 2016-07-28 Inventor: Lee, Jaehyung   Seo, Chung Won   Kwon, Youngmoo   Assignee: Gracenote, Inc.   IPC: H04N21/442 Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods and systems to help disambiguate channel identification in a scenario where fingerprint data of media content matches multiple reference fingerprints corresponding respectively with multiple different channels. Upon detecting such a multi-match, a server or other entity will perform disambiguation based on a determination that a segment of the fingerprint data matches a reference fingerprint corresponding with just a single channel, such as a reference fingerprint representing commercial or news programming content specific to just the single channel. The server or other entity will thereby determine the channel on which the media content being rendered by the media presentation device is arriving, so as to facilitate taking channel-specific action.

Media Channel Identification and Action with Multi-Match Detection and Disambiguation Based on Matching with Differential Reference-Fingerprint Feature
Publication/Patent Number: US2017251250A1 Publication Date: 2017-08-31 Application Number: 15/442,114 Filing Date: 2017-02-24 Inventor: Lee, Jaehyung   Lee, Dewey Ho   Cremer, Markus   Assignee: Gracenote, Inc.   IPC: H04N21/442 Abstract: A computing system compares various reference fingerprints each representing a reference media stream broadcast on a different respective known channel, and the computing system determines that a plurality of the reference fingerprints match each other, thus defining a multi-match group of the matching reference fingerprints. In response, the computing system identifies a fingerprint feature that could define a distinction between the reference fingerprints, and the computing system resolves the multi-match based on the identified feature, thereby determining the channel carrying the media stream being rendered by the media presentation device. And the server then takes channel-specific action based on the determined channel.

Publication/Patent Number: US2017251281A1 Publication Date: 2017-08-31 Application Number: 15/343,895 Filing Date: 2016-11-04 Inventor: Seo, Chung Won   Kwon, Youngmoo   Lee, Jaehyung   Assignee: Gracenote, Inc.   IPC: H04N21/8358 Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods and systems to help disambiguate channel identification in a scenario where fingerprint data of media content being rendered by a media presentation device matches multiple reference fingerprints corresponding respectively with multiple different channels. Upon detecting such a multi-match, a server or other entity will perform disambiguation based at least in part on a comparison of time of broadcast of the media content being rendered by the media presentation device with time of broadcast of the media content represented by the reference fingerprints. The server or other entity will thereby determine the channel on which the media content being rendered by the media presentation device is arriving, so as to facilitate taking channel-specific action.

Publication/Patent Number: US2017251251A1 Publication Date: 2017-08-31 Application Number: 15/443,580 Filing Date: 2017-02-27 Inventor: Seo, Chung Won   Kwon, Youngmoo   Lee, Jaehyung   Assignee: Gracenote, Inc.   IPC: H04N21/442 Abstract: A computing system will compare various reference fingerprints each representing a reference media stream broadcast on a different respective known channel, and the computing system will determine that a plurality of the reference fingerprints match each other, thus defining a multi-match group of the matching reference fingerprints. Further, the computing system will determine that a query fingerprint representing a media stream being rendered by a media presentation device matches the multi-match group, thus raising a question of which channel is carrying the media stream that is being rendered by the media presentation device. By considering one or more attributes of the query fingerprint, the server may then disambiguate and thereby determine the channel at issue, and the server may in turn take channel-specific action.
